“The truth is, unless you let go, unless you forgive yourself, unless you forgive the situation,  unless you realize that the situation is over, you cannot move forward.”

– Steve Maraboli

Here and now I feel love, I feel peace.  Here and now I feel my connection to all other souls and remember they’re not others – that we are all One.  I remember our innocence and the Truth of who we are.  I remember that we are all perfect divine beings trying to make it through the day in this rat race called life.  Doing the best we can with what we’ve got.  Doing the best we can within the realm of our own consciousness.  Doing what we all can to somehow find the Love that we only think we’re lacking.  Including myself.

In this remembrance, I need to recognize that it’s not just others I need to forgive, it’s also myself.  It’s not just others’ errors that I need to let go of, but also my own.  I need to let go of the ideas of wrongdoing and rightdoing.  I need to let go of the idea that any part of the past matters.  I need to let go of the idea of the illusions of hurt.

Out beyond ideas of wrongdoing and rightdoing, there is a field.  I’ll meet you there.  When the soul lies down in that grass, the world is too full to talk about.  Ideas, language, even the phrase “each other” doesn’t make any sense.

– Rumi

It’s when I recognize and remember that “Nothing real can be threatened and nothing unreal exists” that I am free; that I can move on in life; that I can experience the Heaven within myself.  I embrace the Love in others, I embrace the Love within myself.  I embrace all that is perfect in the recognition of it’s perfection.

I’m ready for the Good, I’m ready for the next chapter.  I forgive anything and everyone that I’ve failed to forgive, even myself.  I’m clearing the mess within myself to make room for that Good, for that Heaven I seek.

In kind forgiveness will the world sparkle and shine, and everything you once thought sinful now will be reinterpreted as part of Heaven.  How beautiful it is to walk, clean and redeemed and happy, through a world in bitter need of redemption that your innocence bestows upon it!  What can you value more than this?  For here is your salvation and your freedom.  And it must be complete if you would recognize it.

I move on forward and forgive.  I move onward in Love.  I shift into peace.  I thrive with understanding.  I embrace acceptance of Heaven.
